Hike Blyde River Canyon
The Blyde River Canyon Trail is located within the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve in Mpumalanga, forming the northern part of the Drakensberg escarpment. It provides one of the most scenic mountain views available in South Africa, with a deep gorge vista and beautiful rock formations. The once-rapid river formed spectacular swirl holes, and being the third largest gorge in the world, this breathtaking area, is undeniably a natural wonder worth viewing. The entire length of the Blyde River Canyon Trail is approximately 60km (37mi) and takes around five days to complete the hike, although it is possible to explore in shorter two to three-day trails as well.
